Great to Find this Site

I'm glad I found this site. For almost seven years, I used to ride every day from my home to office and back. Then, I got married, and since I commuted to the office with my wife I let my biking fall away. However, we had our first daughter about a year ago, so my wife encouraged me to get back into riding my bike again. Of course, I think it helps that she gets to have the car at home!

With that being said, I'm glad to be riding again. I got back onto my bike after three years of neglect, and I couldn't believe I had let it go.

So, Thanks for having a great site!!

Joe's the guy to thank for the Forums, the rest of us just make it colorful. BF and back into cycling!
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

Welcome ticktock! There is so much to learn from here for cycling has changed so much. Everyone here shares a wealth of information. Next thing you know, you will be helping others get back on their bikes! Congrats on the baby..........maybe your wife and child would love to come along and ride with you. (They have those baby trailers that you can hitch onto your bike!)

Yep, welcome to this little slice of bikedom

Beware of the advocacy and safety forum, there be dragons there

Aside from that, have some fun!
